Megan Thee Stallion tapped rapper Young Thug for her new booty-shaking track, titled "Don't Stop."
Black Twitter has already dubbed the track "WAP" Part 2 - in reference to Megan's No. 1 song with Cardi B.
The music video theme is Alice In Wonderland. Megan recreates the "WAP" music video in which she and Cardi sashayed through a whore house, exchanging lyrics about feminine body parts.
Young Thug appears as Edward Scizzorhands, using his handy scissors to trim the hedges and clip Megan's wig.

Young Thug and Chris Brown dropped their new animated music video for "Say You Love Me", on Monday. The single is off their mixtape Slime & B, which dropped 5 months ago.
Both men have something in common: they fail miserably with the ladies. So they try their luck with two animated women in a different dimension. But the 2 cartoon cuties swerve them even in another dimension.
In real life, Thugger complained about the lack of intimacy in a post on his Instagram Story: "Ain't had no pu**y in so long man gotta be 'bout a month," he wrote.
It isn't clear if women are avoiding him because of his reputation, or if the Covid pandemic scared them off.
Atlanta is wide open, so it must be the former.
The video was directed by Dark Matter FX.

Black Twitter isn't feeling Jay Z's bars on Pharrell Williams' new track titled "Entrepreneur," set for release on Friday, Aug. 21.
The 50-year-old rapper teamed up with Pharrell, 47, for the new track, released in conjunction with the new TIME magazine issue "The New American Revolution" curated by Pharrell.
The issue celebrates the Black revolution in America. "I couldn't be more grateful to curate :The Next American Revolution" -- a special issue of @TIME Magazine that envisions a Black Future in an America where all people are actually created equal," Pharrell tweeted.

Jay Z, left, is pictured in concert with his wife Beyonce, right, and Pharrell in South Africa in 2018.
In a snippet of the song on Apple Music, Jay Z urges supporting Black businesses and being Black business owners.
But he got off on the wrong foot by diminishing Black Twitter.
"Black Twitter, what's that? When Jack gets paid, do you? For every one Gucci, support two FUBU’s."
Black Twitter was quick to denounce Jay Z for being out of touch with the times.
One Twitter user wrote:
"Jay Z today: Why y'all on black twitter? And buying Gucci instead of supporting Fubu?
"Jay Z four months from now: I'm very pleased to announce I'm collaborating with Gucci on their black twitter line."
Others chime in, knocking Jay Z for being too preachy about buying Black when he supported white brands in his music for decades.
"jay z for 25 years: “gucci, louis v, richard mille, goyard, fendi, louboutin, cartier, mercedes, in the box seats with the mink on brushing shoulders with the owners”
jay z in 2020: "buy more fubu."
Cardi B has defended Kylie Jenner's cameo appearance as a whore in her "WAP" video featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Cardi issued a statement after angry fans launched petition to have the reality star's cameo removed from the music video.
Cardi and Megan Thee Stallion dropped the video for their collaboration on Thursday, Aug. 6, featuring a variety of dancers including Normani, Mulatto, and Suki.
Jenner's appearance riled Cardi's fans, who demanded her removal in a Change.org petition that was launched over the weekend, labeling Jenner a "culture vulture".
But the "Bodak Yellow" star hit back on Twitter, insisting, "Not everything is about race."
Fans were tight that Normani and the other dancers were depicted as strippers while Jenner strolls down a hallway opening a door.
"Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that's not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most..." wrote one fan, prompting the hitmaker's response.
"Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f**kin ass off!" Cardi wrote. "Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass."
She continued: "Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f**kin race."
"Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid's bday party," Cardi insisted in a final tweet. "Travis (Scott, Kylie's ex) and Set (Offset, Cardi's husband) are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine."
Sandrarose.com gave the music video 2.5 roses, but my readers gave it 0.5 roses -- usually reserved for music videos that belong in a dumpster.
A$AP Ferg filmed a music video for his track "Green Juice" in New York City on Thursday, Aug. 6.
Yes, that's a hair headband he's wearing. It's the new trend in hairstyles that are designed to look like accessories.
Ferg and his crew went mask-free for his music video that featured some of New York's finest dancers.
Ferg recently released a new track featuring rappers Nicki Minaj rapper MadeinTYO. "Move Ya Hips" is Ferg's third collaboration with Nicki Minaj. They have had success in the past with Ferg's "Plain Jane" remix and "Runnin" from the Creed II soundtrack.
Nicki released her latest LP Queen in 2018. The rapper and her husband, Kenny Petty, are awaiting their first child together. Kenny already has 5 children from previous relationships.
Cardi B recruited up-and-coming rapper Megan Thee Stallion for her new track "WAP". Megan outshines Cardi on her own track (which isn't difficult to do).
The ladies exchange verses over a sample from Frank Ski's - "There's Some Whores in This House", as Cardi raps:
Beat it up, nigga, catch a charge
Extra large and extra hard
Put this pu$$y right in your face
Swipe your nose like a credit card
Cardi and Megan wear matching pastel colored lingerie while touring a Miami modern-style whore house featuring rooms with strippers, tigers, snakes, and raunchy X-rated art on the walls.
Oh, and Kylie Jenner makes a cameo appearance as one of the whores.
The song itself is typical Cardi B fare, bragging about her manufactured body and her skills in the bedroom wile struggling to ride the beat.
"I don't cook, I don't clean/But let me tell you, I got this ring," she raps.
Like she did for Beyonce, Megan will take this track to the top of the charts. Ironically, Megan, who was allegedly shot twice by her boyfriend Tory Lanez, raps about controlling her man. ("You can't hurt my feelings, but I like pain").
"Gobble me, swallow me, drip down the side of me
Quick, jump out before you let it get inside of me
I tell him where to put it, never tell him where I'm about to be
I run down on him before I have a nigga runnin' me (Pow, pow, pow)."
Megan totally outclasses Cardi and exposes her lyrical weaknesses on this track. I give this song 2.5 roses for Megan's stellar efforts to salvage this trash.

An Alabama high school principal is going viral with his Cornavirus-themed "Can't Touch This" parody video.
The video is a parody of MC Hammer's '80s hit song "U Can't Touch This." Childersburg High School Principal Quentin Lee wears tailored suits, a face mask and gloves as he dances around while wielding tools to sanitize classrooms.
The video racked up 5 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on July 28. "COVID! Is stressing me, all the updates from the CDC. Lysol! Can't be found, I've looked all around this town," Lee raps.
He sneaks up on students using a digital thermometer, a measuring tape for social distancing, and a can of Lysol spray. "You can't touch this!" he tells the students.
Lee told a reporter he hopes his efforts brings a smile to the faces of students and gives them confidence when they return to school in the fall.
"We are working tirelessly to make sure school is a place where students can be accepted, loved and clean," he said. "Everybody needs love, regardless of political party or ethnic background. If we can allow people to laugh and forget about their problems, then we've accomplished the goal."
Megan Thee Stallion wowed fans on Sunday night as she pulled out all the stops for her performances during the virtual BET Awards.
The buxom 25-year-old rapper took inspiration from the Mad Max films for her incredible 4-minute video, in which she performed renditions of her hits "Girls In The Hood" and "Savage."
Dressed in a leather bralet and matching bottoms, with knee-high boots and a spiked bolero, the curvaceous star made an impressive entrance on a quad bike as she was joined by similarly clad dancers for the desert dance-off.
After concluding "Girls In The Hood", Megan and her bodacious crew jumped on their quad bikes to travel to their second destination - a stage set up from scaffolding in the middle of the desert.
From there, Megan ditched her cover-up as she twerked, jiggled and danced her way through the eye-popping choreography, before the video concluded with the voluptuous rapper riding through the landscape on a spiky throne being driven by a masked man.
"Thank you BET," a thrilled Megan smiled as she finished her performance, which had been viewed more than 300,500 times on BET's YouTube page as WENN went to press.
Megan had another reason to celebrate on Sunday night, as she also took home the trophy for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.
The award is the latest sign that Megan's fame is still on the rise. But despite her growing success, the young star won't stop her studies at Texas Southern University - where she's working on a bachelor's degree - as a tribute to her mom Holly Thomas, who died in March 2019 after battling brain cancer.
"I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud," Megan told People magazine. "My grandmother that's still alive used to be a teacher, so she's on my butt about finishing school. I'm doing it for me, but I'm also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today."
Charlie Wilson is back with a new R&B/hip-hop scorcher, titled "One I Got."
The mid-tempo track samples The Four Tops' hit song, "Ain't No Woman Like the One I Got" (I'll post the original below for you young'ns).
In Wilson's music video, the lovestruck sugar daddy treats his lady to luxury gifts and flowers to prove she's the only woman in his life.
Before you start complaining about the age difference between Charlie, 67, and his lover, men are naturally attracted to women of child-bearing age. That doesn't mean beautiful women of a certain age can't pull a great catch like Charlie Wilson.
The R&B crooner is still married to his wife of 25 years, Mahin Tat.

Brandy dropped a new single to honor single mothers, entitled "Baby Mama" featuring Chance The Rapper. Brandy said the inspiration for the song is her 17-year-old daughter, Sy'rai Iman Smith.
"The inspiration for Baby Mama was of course my daughter and how she makes me a better person. I wanted to do a song about her and speak to all baby mama's out there that may feel like they can't make it or they can't push through, you know, if you use your child as an inspiration you can do anything and I want to everybody to feel that. I have to give Chance The Rapper a huge shout out, he spit a really really dope verse on it and I’m so pleased with it. – Love, Brandy."
The music video was directed by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks with creative direction by Frank Gatson. Gatson is the friend who called 911 the night of Jussie Smollett's unfortunate career-ending incident in Chicago last year.
Brandy is asking for donations to Homes for the Holidays, part of Warrick Dunn Charities to benefit single parent families in need.
Homes for the Holidays partners with affordable housing providers to reduce the financial burden on single parent homeowners by fully furnishing their new house, providing down payment assistance, and stocking the pantry with food and other household necessities. Since 1997, "Homes for the Holidays" has rewarded 177 single parents and 477 children and dependents.

Moneybagg Yo's vulgar track "123" featuring Blac Youngsta (left) played a role in the controversy surrounding aging rap mogul Sean Combs and attention-starved singer Lizzo.
Moneybagg Yo dropped the music video for his track on Tuesday, April 14.

Lizzo was one of the celebrity guests on Combs' Easter Sunday digital dance party. The mogul raised more than $3.7 million to aid healthcare workers during the coronavirus outbreak in America.
Combs hastily stopped the dance party when Lizzo, who tuned in remotely from her home, began twerking during the livestream.
Combs tried to play it off as if he objected to the vulgar rap lyrics of Moneybagg Yo's track.
But Lizzo knew she was wrong, as she apologized profusely for twerking on the day the Lord rolled the boulder from the cave.
Combs was heavily criticized for "fat-shaming" Lizzo when skinny socialite Draya Michele twerked during his dance party later than night.
Musician Tory Lanez redeemed Lizzo by allowing her to perform a subdued twerk during his radio podcast.
Lizzo, dressed in a pink teddy, seemed embarrassed to drop it low after the controversy she caused on the Lord's day.

DaBaby broke quarantine to make his way to "childhood crush" Raven-Symoné's house to deliver beer and ice cream to her while she's on quarantine during the coronavirus outbreak.
The 28-year-old rapper had been self-isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic, but he went live on Instagram with the 'That's So Raven' star from his car.
DaBaby was very flirtatious with the 34-year-old openly lesbian actress and singer. He said he was going to make all of his female followers mad by publicly speaking with the "Space Truck" singer.
Raven had a message for DaBaby's female fans: "Oh, they're fine. Y'all, I'm a lesbian. Y'all can have him."
The "Find My Way" rapper then showed Raven a box of Corona beers and some Snickers ice cream and she said she wanted some - so he drove over to her house to drop the groceries off.
When the pair met up outside her home, DaBaby took his mask off and got up close and personal with the former Cosby kid, who was quick to insist: "You're not supposed to be this close to me... Watch I get the coronavirus because of this one right here!"
Raven debuted her single "Space Truck" late last month. What do you think of Raven's new music?

Megan Thee Stallion dropped her much-anticipated album SUGA on Friday. The 28-year-old rapper also released the music video for her single "B.I.T.C.H.", which garnered 577K views on YouTube.
Despite a Texas judge warning him to clam up, Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince spoke out about Megan's contract dispute with her label.
J. Prince took to Instagram to share his thoughts about Megan's lawsuit against her boss Carl Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment.
Problems began when Megan signed a management deal with Jay-Z and Roc Nation. In a tearful video she claimed 1501 wouldn't let her drop new music.
She won a small victory in court when a judge granted a restraining order against Crawford preventing him from blocking her music release.

"We have no problem negotiating with Megan but we do have a problem with dictators," Prince said, referring to Jay-Z and Roc Nation, whom he accused of "poaching" artists from Houston record labels.
The 54-year-old music exec noted that Megan's behavior is reckless and she's heading for self-destruction.
"Megan seems to be a perfect candidate for self destruction," Prince writes. "Any artist in the music industry will testify that a 40% profit share is a great deal especially for an unestablished artist that til this day has never delivered an album."
In a follow-up to his original post, Prince wrote:
"To end this I give credit to where credit is due. Megan along with her mother, who evidently could read (God rest her soul), negotiated a good deal. I extended my hand to meet with Megan, T Farris, and team personally for further negotiations. Unfortunately it never happened even though we’re all in Houston, because she’s being controlled by the very people who started this shit. The homie Carl was an angel in Megan's eyes when he was spending hundreds of thousands investing in her career. Now that he’s helped her become a successful artist she stopped paying him his percentage and views him as the devil. I'm glad money don’t make me. I make money."
Megan responded to Prince's posts, saying, "I am no one's property!"
